"One Long Island" Meta Chart 3.15.10

Just thought I'd post the chart for review before I continue with the "expansion."

Each individual element of the chart is described in previous posts.

The design is modular in nature (as previously discussed) so that the different elements contain common features which may be linked as quickly or deliberately as desired.

This NY Times article gives somewhat of an overview of what the project is about.

A couple of worthwhile sites ...

Some interesting "alternative" news and information sources popping up on Long Island.

One is from and the other is from a subdivision of AOL called Patch.

Both appear to be anticipating the "dissolution" or at least the marginalization of long standing media here on Long Island (as elsewhere) and are attempting to position themselves to reap the rewards.

Both sites are worth checking out.

I will be attempting to incorporate sources of this type with others in my role with the Long Island Regional Planning Council to promote the type of "meta information" concepts I've written about previously here on this site.
